Today I picked up an "oil can" of fosters on my way home from work and here's my review. It pours golden straw color. The smell is grainy with hints of corn and faint metal. The taste is of wheat, other non-distinct grains, and faint hoppyness. Overall this is a "party" beer in my opinion and pretty good one at that.

Look as a light golden color heavy streams carbonation thick white frothy head.
Smell is nearly hideous not too many redeeming qualities corn lemon and some funk.
Taste and yes it actually has some. A watery corn wheat lemon bitter pretty much what you would expect for a lower-end lager.
Feel is very thin and watery was loads of carbonation.
Overall you get what you expect. There is a time and a place for every beer . If you're expecting to be blown away the world class beer full of complex flavors then this isn't the beer for you and you shouldn't expect it to be. If you want crisp refreshment, a good beer to go with a light meal or just a good sessionable drinking beer it hits the mark.

Pretty basic lager, not my favorite one out there. I always felt this had an off flavor that just did not work.

For a Lager with an ABV of 5%... I think it is a great choice... I think these reviews are skewed against heavily marketed beer...

I love this beer. The only reason I don't drink it more often is that it is only available in the oil cans around here. Tastes and smells just like "beer" to me.

Reviewing Foster's Lager. Poured out of a 750ml can. Let's begin.

Appearance - A large, foamy head. Standard yellow. It appears highly carbonated.

Smell - Immediate grainy scent. Good scents... maze, maybe rice, good grains and malt.

Taste - An unexpected, weird flavor off the bat. Has notes of citrus. Tastes of faded hops and almost sour tasting, with a slight metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Standard carbonation, standard thickness. Drinkable.

Overall - Not a terrible beer, however, it's not the greatest. If you're already drunk, this may appeal to you.

Cheers.

I used to like this quite a bit but now it's a little subpar. Goes down easy but has a touch of a rank taste. Basically a bbq beer. But there are better options for that.
